San Francisco ~ Day 5

Alcatraz

sunny

We started the day off going to the Ugg store. They are my moms fav shoes/boots so she wanted me to drop in the store and check out the prices and see if they had a broshure. Soo Sherri and I stopped in there and ended up buying us (plus my mom) these adorable Ugg boot keychains. Sooo cute. We stopped back in the hotel to drop the packages off and picked up my sis and we headed to starbucks for breakfast.

After eating we headed to the mall bc the inital plan was to take the BART to Embarcdero to catch our Alcatraz tour..but after looking at the map we realized it would be closer to take the cable car (trolley) and then walk there..it was on Pier 33. Soo we hung out at the mall for a bit waiting on the the other girl then jumped in the LONG trolley line to ride to Fishermans wharf and walk to pier 33. We were rushed bc wed waited soo long in the trolley line now. But we eventually made it there in time to use the potty and jump on our ferry.

Alcatraz was an experience. I wish that I would have enjoyed it more than I did... but it was so cold and it was the end of the week and we were all worn out and I really wasnt in the mood to go at this point..but it was cool still. Next time I will do it on the first day and see the whole island. There are great opportunities for photos here. I wish I would have taken more...cared more.

After nearly 4 hours there we finally headed back and then walked to Pier 39 where we had dinner at Hard Rock Cafe and then finally back to the hotel where once again...we passed out. The earliest night of all I went to bed. The week had just drained me...I wanted to stay up late on our last night here but I just wasnt able to. lol
